Paperwork Reduction Act

Before USCIS can extend, revise, or create a new public use form or reporting requirement, we must first notify the public of our intent and allow the public to provide comments on the new or revised requirement. 

  • Please visit to view current and past notices, along with supporting documents, regarding information collection actions.
  • Please visit and select the “Information Collection Review” tab for information on currently approved collections of information for USCIS and all federal agencies.
  • Please visit A Guide to the Paperwork Reduction Act for information on the Paperwork Reduction Act including its effects on the public and how federal agencies must comply with it.

Please note that the proposed new or revised forms are in draft form and cannot be used by the public until OMB approves the forms.
